Planners divided in vacation rental strategy

Cheers to Christmas joy


“I disagree with the idea that we should wait until we have problems and then solve them,”

Two suggested courses of action arose from the three planning commissioners present at Monday night’s meeting to discuss how to address the issue of vacation rentals reducing long-term housing stock and having deleterious effects on residential neighborhoods. The two approaches endorsed by commissioners vary from allowing up to 195 to 320 vacation rentals in the area south of Highway 101. In October, the City –– Commissioner Council implemented a Benefield moratorium on any new vacation rentals in order to avoid a mad rush for new permits on vacation rentals while staff researched and drafted an ordinance to amend city code. The city currently has 218 legally operating short term rentals. Other cities around the world are also grappling with the issue of vacation rentals. Rising popularity of websites such as airbnb and Vacation Rental By Owner has led to the conversion of homes to short term rentals. As a result, cities have suffered the loss of workforce housing, and new noise and parking nuisances have cropped up in neighborhoods. Enforcement of unlawful vacation rentals has proven difficult. Cities have struggled to identify illegal rentals, connect with owners and ascertain if the use is within the definition of a short term rental, which is 30 or fewer night stays. Mayor Gregg Carty now has the authority to sign and issue subpoenas for certain records related to the rentals, which should be useful in stepping up enforcement. Commissioner Jane Benefield spoke in favor of adopting a more stringent code restricting vacation rentals to the beach neighborhood and one portion of downtown and capping the amount at 20 percent of the units in those areas. She advocated for raising penalties for violations and the cost of permitting and requiring rentals to follow several operating procedures, such as posting manager contact information outside the building and restricting the number of vehicles renters can have. Lighter regulations and greater flexibility were proposed by the commission’s Vice-Chair John Callender and echoed by Chair John Moyer. They suggested opening the areas south of the highway zoned for Planned Residential Development—which includes 1,611 units in higher density areas—to a maximum of 20 percent vacation rentals.

Aragon beauty is Lookin’ Good

The front yard of Deana Rae and Robert Shroll on Aragon Drive went from a wasteland of drought-sensitive sod to a dreamscape of drought resistant succulents over the last couple years. A Lookin’ Good Award from Carpinteria Beautiful was planted in the yard last week, the finishing touch to a project that Rae described as a “labor of love.” Rae, a self-taught gardener who grew 75 percent of the plants she used from cuttings, said she is really honored to have been selected for this award. “It means so much, because I started this project to save water, plant my favorite plants in the ground and inspire others. We don’t need a big water sucking lawn for our landscapes The front yard of Deana Rae and Robert Shroll’s home has to look beautiful.

Carpinteria based Westerlay Orchids donated $28,000 to the Breast Cancer Resource Center of Santa Barbara as part of its nationwide Pink Diamond Orchid promotion that took place during the month of October for Breast Cancer Awareness Month. A portion of all of the sales from the new Gemstone Orchid, the Pink Diamond, sold during the month of October will help the local community resource center and its patients. “We are thrilled to be able to assist this organization in its mission to help the community and those struggling with breast cancer,” said Toine Overgaag, owner of Westerlay Orchids. “Our company is proud to support neighbors and friends here on the Central Coast.” The company has previously donated to other local charities during past Octobers including sponsoring no cost mammograms for low-income women in October 2014. Westerlay Orchids collaborated with VG Orchids, a grower based in The Netherlands and the creator of the Gemstone line of orchids, on the donation.

Bicyclist struck on Via Real in hit and run

A bicyclist traveling south on Via Real was struck from behind by a vehicle on the morning of Dec. 8 near Padaro Lane and sustained serious injuries. According to California Highway Patrol, the truck identified in the hit and run was a white Ford F-150, likely a model between the years 1997 and 2003. It is missing the right side view mirror and had a toolbox in the bed. Carpinteria-Summerland Fire District provided emergency medical assistance and reported that the vehicle was traveling at approximately 40 miles per hour when it struck the male cyclist, who was wearing a helmet. CHP and bystanders assisted the man, who had likely sustained a broken arm and hip, before he was transported to Cottage Hospital.

Then there was the ritual of starting a cooking fire with two matches and preparing a meal with it that was conducted at some rural spot off Greenwell Avenue. We always looked forward to playing capture the flag at the conclusion of meetings on a field adjacent to a building on what is now Summerland’s Lookout Park. Later, in 1964, while a Marine Corps recruit, I was most appreciative of the marching drills Angelo had a retired Korean Army Sergeant teach us. I only hope that I thanked Angelo sufficiently when I reintroduced myself to him at the last multiple Carpinteria High School class reunions. By that time I had become well aware of the scope of Angelo’s and his beloved wife, Marie’s, contributions to the Carpinteria Valley. All should be so fortunate to have had the influence of such a man in their lives.

Feds coddle Muslims

Regarding the recent tragedy of the San Bernardino terrorist attack, I thought it important to make note of Attorney General Loretta Lynch’s declaration to our country’s citizens. It will no longer be tolerated if our children speak out and/ or bully Muslim students. At a recent fundraiser dinner for a Muslim Advocate group, Lynch spoke to and advised Muslims to report any “incident” straight to the Department of Justice. What happened to “going to the principal’s office”? I suppose this means our schools are no longer under “local” jurisdiction, but federal now. While most of us do not condone bullying of any sort, it seems to me that Muslims in this situation are given preferential treatment. This in spite of the fact that most terrorist attacks have happened by Muslim radicals. If you are Jewish, Christian or something else, don’t bother calling the DOJ about being bullied. I can see the lawsuits coming in galore on this one. Does anyone think our school system can handle this financial burden? I certainly don’t.

For the record... Coastal View News erroneously reported on Dec. 3 that a $15,000 check from the California Avocado Festival was donated to the Carpinteria Valley Chamber of Commerce’s scholarship fund. The amount went toward the chamber ’s general fund.

A challenge going forward talking about water

STEVE NICOLAIDES I was born in December and it’s always been my favorite month. I like when it gets dark early. I like cold weather. Our first granddaughter, Nina, is a December baby. She, like me, was adopted. We came into a cold December world and eventually found a loving family to call our own. Growing up, it was always the time of the best football. The NFL championship was mid-December, the Pro Bowl two weeks later, and New Years Day was college bowl day. To this football-crazy kid, it was heaven. As I grew older, with a family of my own, December evolved into a month of reflection. Sometimes I was overwhelmed with gratitude for the blessings of the past year; sometimes I was overwhelmed with the stupidity of my behavior. A stressful career, a hot temper, much too much travel—it can get to you. This December I feel frightened, frustrated, yet at the same time hopeful. The growing pattern of vicious, random violence on the streets of the world’s cities is deeply disturbing. Our media of nightmare has us quivering in our boots each time we travel to an international city. Isis is the new Gestapo. Go to a concert, check into a hotel or sit down at a café? You’re rolling the dice, my friend. In an instant, lives change forever. And so I want to share some thoughts you rarely hear in today’s media. The entire Middle East has been in a decades’ long drought. When the Aswan High Dam on the Nile River in Egypt was completed in 1970, the Nile Valley, once the breadbasket of the Middle East, began drying up. Once again, energy trumped water (the Aswan has 12 giant hydroelectric generators). As farmland in the region dried up, rural people moved to the cities. Desperation, followed by anger and then radical politics, all eventually moved in with them. It’s the same in Syria. Over the last several years, as drought ravished the rich farmlands, 1.5 million rural people flocked into Syrian cities, where of course there were no jobs, not enough living space, high-priced food and a vicious police force that only protected the powerful and wealthy. This is the essential recipe for the collapse of government and the rise of insurrection, now as it

always has been. Nothing to do, nothing to eat, makes everyone grumpy. It makes everyone a potential recruit to extremist politics. Some say this is a war of civilizations, but I can see this as a war started by water. Here in California, we’ve had a very good year in water. The state has met the water usage regulations in almost every sector. Since the drought in the 1990s, technology has shown us low-flow toilets, low-flow shower and sink taps. Lately we’ve attacked wasteful landscaping, and underground water storage systems are coming online. But I don’t believe it’s about “this” drought. I believe we’ve altered global weather patterns and regardless of whether the Godzilla El Niño comes or not, where we live will remain very warm, very dry, with periodic super storms and then years of little if any rain. This is a struggle that will define the rest of our lives. And here’s what that means. Larger public projects will be needed. Desalination, sentry wells, fresh water recycling, rain water capture, storm drain capture. None of this will be cheap. But it’s an expense we cannot afford to skip. Our drought is a worldwide drought. Russia, Ukraine, Iraq, Malaysia, North Africa, Afghanistan, Israel/Palestine, Syria—wherever there is violence in the world, it has started with struggles over water. Sorry to get a little preachy, but I believe this. The Dust Bowl of the 1930s ended with a major migration from the farm to the city all over the planet. Many have argued the end result was World War II. Let’s hope the climate summit in Paris is safe and starts something meaningful. No one wants another world war. So, may all the rain that comes your way in 2016 be strong, soaking and continuous. Wishing you all a wonderful holiday season. Thanks, Carpinteria, for a great year in water. P.S. A great Santa Barbara county organization, Sweetwater Collaborative, is having a holiday fundraiser. The goal is to raise a modest $10,000. They are teachers and innovators, almost exclusively using high school and college students to replace lawns, clear creeks, design homeowner systems to start the rainwater capture revolution that needs to happen. Check out their website,, and help them if you can. I did. Steve Nicolaides was born and raised in Southern California. He has two granddaughters in the west, and he’s determined to understand and help fix our very serious water problems.


Carol Taber, pictured seated center, spends every Tuesday playing bridge at the Sandpiper Mobile Home Park Clubhouse with the group of ladies pictured around her.

103 and still going strong

When asked how she’s lived so long, Carol Taber’s typical response is, “They seem not to want me up there (looks up), and I don’t want to be down there (looks down).” The centenarian, who lives at Sandpiper Mobile Home Park with her daughter and grandson, marked her 103rd birthday on Dec. 4. Mrs. Taber remains quite independent despite the triple digits in her age. She dresses herself and makes her buttered toast breakfast every day. She reads the newspaper and watches General Hospital every day. On Fridays she hops in the HELP car to have her hair done at Coco’s House of Beauty. On Tuesdays she plays bridge with friends at the Sandpiper clubhouse, the highlight of her week and a tradition she has maintained since she moved to the park in 1978. Despite a life-threatening lymphoma diagnosis in 1998 and a heart attack, doctors tell her she is now in great health. She played basketball in high school while growing up in Oklahoma, and though she no longer hits the courts, she still follows the NBA avidly and has rooted for the Clippers ever since the Lakers stopped being competitive. According to daughter Carol Bahr, her mother’s sharp wit and memory remain intact, and she continues to regularly win bridge games on Tuesdays. She has three children, three step-children and one grandson.

Regina M “Reggie” Hepp 4/19/1945 – 12/5/2015

Reggie died on Dec. 5 at Serenity House at age 70 after a very long battle with metastatic breast cancer. She is survived by her husband, Bill, her son John and step-children Donna and Curt. She is also survived by her three grandchildren, Matthew, Michael and Jennifer, along with many wonderful friends, nieces and nephews and her dog, Bella. Reggie and Bill moved to Carpinteria from the LA area in 1995 when Reggie transferred to the corporate office of Tecolote Research, Inc. where she worked until retirement in 2010. In 1998 she signed up to participate in the Avon Breast Cancer 3 Day, 60-mile Walk from Santa Barbara to Malibu to raise money and awareness for breast cancer. She became an organizer and Walk Leader, inspiring others to join her in the fight against cancer. She went on to walk two more events, in 1999 and 2000. Until 2015 she could be found most Sunday mornings walking along Cabrillo Boulevard with a group of friends she made on the three-day walks. Reggie had a powerful impact on the many friends she made throughout her life. She will be remembered for her enjoyment of world travel, especially in Africa and Asia, her love of animals, her down-to-earth humor, and her unpretentious manner. But most of all, she will be remembered for the love and care she gave to so many other people. She was a constant source of inspiration to everyone at the Cancer Center and to all her friends. She never allowed her cancer to define her and she never gave into it. She was a fighter until the end. In as much as Reggie did not wish to be memorialized and as per her wishes, there will be no formal remembrance service. Please consider donations in her name to the Santa Barbara Cancer Center, 540 Pueblo Street, Santa Barbara, CA 93105

Virginia Schuyler 1/2/1920 – 12/5/2015

Virginia Schuyler died Dec. 5 in Taft after a short illness. She was 95. She is survived by her daughter Betsy Rowland (husband Larry) of Taft and a son, Lowell Schuyler (wife Carolyn) of Carpinteria, 10 grandchildren and 18 great-grandchildren. She also leaves behind several nieces and a nephew, who loved her very much. She was preceded in death by her husband, Dale, and her sons Philip and David Schuyler. Born in Fullerton, Calif. on Jan. 2, 1920, she spent much of her childhood and adult years living in Carpinteria before moving to Taft in 1975 to be near her daughter’s family and many of her grandchildren and their families. According to Virginia’s wishes, there will be no funeral or memorial service.

Mega fundraising runners hold up digits to show their classmates that they raised $31,656. When all the donations came in, that number climbed to over $32,000.

Joggers raise big bucks

Canalino School students ran over 10,800 laps, or 1,350 miles, last month to raise more than $32,000 for their school. The annual jog-a-thon included record-breaking fundraising from both Carter Cox, who brought in $2418, and Isabella Scott, who brought in $2,312. Kate Isaac was the third highest fundraiser with $820 in pledges. Children had 45 minutes to run as many laps as possible around the track during the event. Top runners from the Kindergarten through second grade were Solomon Garcia-Belmonte, who ran 30 laps, and Drew Filippini-Campos, who ran 34 laps. From the third through fifth grades, Omar Argueta, Stephanie Ramirez Garcia, Elena Vargas and Said Morales Martinez ran 35 laps. Caleb Faoro topped everyone with 37 laps. Parents for Canalino hold the annual event and use the funds for field trips, swim lessons for third-graders, fifth-grade science camp, ballroom dance, art, assemblies, gardening and basic enrichment.

PLANNING ConTinued froM Page 1

For some people, Callender said, preserving Carpinteria’s small town character means having local government play a less heavy-handed role. He recognized that problems have arisen from vacation rentals, but said, “I’m also sympathetic to home owners that want to use their homes in a way that do not dramatically impact their surroundings.” Moyer pointed out that in recent years, vacation rental remodels have improved the look and vitality of local neighborhoods. He noted the collection of formerly dilapidated cottages on 7th Street that are now attractive and popular vacation rentals, and the conversion of Island Apartments to Playa Lodging on Linden Avenue. “I disagree with the idea that we should wait until we have problems and then solve them,” Benefield said in response to her colleagues’ recommendations. Staff will draft an ordinance that contains multiple options based on commissioners’ different views. Commissioners David Allen and Glenn La Fevers did not attend the meeting. A few locals spoke in favor of tighter regulations on vacation rentals due to problems that have arisen in their neighborhoods. Jim Reginato, whose home is near a short term rental, has complained in several public meetings that the operation brings late night noise and numerous cars to his quiet street. He said, “We buy our houses and expect to have a neighborhood, and instead we have motels.” The opposing view was also represented during public comment. William Reed, who owns a vacation rental in town, noted that the city benefits from the bed tax collected on vacation rentals, and visitors to town spend money with local merchants. Only about 4 percent of the city’s residential units are now vacation rentals, which Williams argued represents too small a number to have a great impact on longterm housing availability. “Right now it’s not a serious problem,” he said. Carpinteria currently has 218 permit-

ted short-term rental units. Of those rentals, 169 are in the beach neighborhood, which spans Linden to Ash avenues from the railroad tracks to the beach, and 34 are located in downtown zones. Several unpermitted vacation rentals also exist in Carpinteria, though precisely how many is unknown. Some of the owners are probably unaware that they are operating rentals illegally while others are more intentional with their failure to follow the letter of the law, City Planner Shanna Farley said. The ordinance ultimately adopted by the city is likely to delineate how to better regulate unpermitted units. The ordinance could also create nonconforming vacation rentals that now operate legally. Cities that have adopted tighter regulations often allow nonconforming rentals to continue operating for one year or more. The commission is expected to review a draft ordinance in January, after which it will go to the City Council for final approval.

Tony’s remodel approved by Planning Commission

The former Tony’s restaurant, 699 Linden Ave., is about to get a facelift. The Planning Commission voted 3-0 to allow a remodel proposed by new owner Tyler Rameson. Rameson will overhaul the 50-plus year old building, tailoring it to house another restaurant. He said he has had several interested tenants, but no lease has been signed yet. The remodel will convert the portion of the building on the corner of Linden Avenue and 7th Street to a square structure allowing for large glass doors on two sides to open and create a bright, airy atmosphere for diners. New landscaping will be added, the back patio will be reconstructed, and the brick exterior will be covered in a smooth, stucco finish.

Turkey Trotters feel the Franklin burn


Traffic on Franklin Trail ramped up last month as die-hard hikers hoofed it up and down the mountain in an effort to log 20 trips for November’s Turkey Trot. Pictured above are many of the friendly faces that took on the challenge posed by dedicated trail user Beth Cox. The Turkey Trot also served as a fundraiser for the third and final phase of trail construction, which will link Carpinteria to the backcountry. Participants set aside dollars every time they hiked, and ultimately the big check to the Santa Barbara County Trails Council amounted to $2,330. Mark Wilkinson, Executive Director of the Trails Council, and trail steward John Culbertson, pictured behind and at right of the check respectively, came out to receive the donation and celebrate the accomplishments of the hikers at Island Brewing Company on the night of Dec. 4. Some challengers exceeded even the 20-trip goal. Jesus Soriano, Olivia Quintero, Francisco Cruz and Leopoldo Quintero went up at 4:30 a.m. for over 25 consecutive days.

For the third year in a row, Lorie Stout, Carpinteria high School ceramics teacher, and Brianna Stout, Canalino School fifthgrade teacher, joined their classes, made bowls and donated them to the Empty Bowls Project. Bowls made for this event were sold on the first Sunday of November at the Empty Bowls Luncheon to raise money for the Foodbank of Santa Barbara County. Students in both classes learned about the true meaning of giving and working together for a common goal. The high school students are big buddies to the fifth graders, teach them directly how to make and glaze the bowls and meet with them three times over the course of the project. Lorie’s other ceramics classes also make bowls and donate them in the spring for the next luncheon in November 2016.

Halos Pitchforks Tailgate party

A deputy pulled into a parking space at Casitas Plaza to find two men in a truck in the neighboring space that weren’t happy to see the lawman on Oct. 30 at 7:23 p.m. The men, 22 and 26, tried to be sly while motioning their hands toward the floor, but it wasn’t the deputy’s first rodeo. He shined a light into the vehicle and discovered two open beers. The men explained that their girlfriends had gone grocery shopping, and they decided to instead drink in the parking lot. A records check showed that the 26-year-old was on probation with a nodrinking term. The officer breathalyzed him and got a .07 reading, which he said he was going to report to the man’s Ventura County probation officer. The man’s probation was for multiple DUIs. The man pleaded that the officer not spread the news about his tailgate party because he’d get “rolled up,” arrested in layman’s terms.

Bubbly burglar

A Casitas Pass Road grocery store reported that a man had stolen $1,200 in champagne on Nov. 12 and then returned for round two on Nov. 23. Surveillance footage showed he entered a liquor cabinet that had been left unlocked and took three bottles of Cristal, valued at $185 apiece, and four bottles of Armand de Brignac, valued between $226 and $380, on Nov. 12. His second pass through on Nov. 23 only resulted in a heist of a $40 bottle. Employees recognized him and notified security, but he wasn’t stopped. Deputies were trying to place his identity based on the footage.

Fenced in

Deputies responded to a call about a domestic dispute on Nov. 25 on Anita Street and found that the alleged disputer had a felony warrant for his arrest and was a slippery suspect. Deputies remembered the man, a 29-year-old known gang member, had fled them before and had carried a large kitchen knife. Five deputies went to the home where he had been accused of a domestic dis-

turbance to set up a perimeter. When one was pulling up the road, he noticed a woman walking up the street, the man’s sister, who hightailed it into the home. Deputies approached and over loud music heard a woman say, “The cops are here,” and the music went silent. One deputy was positioned in the backyard of a neighboring home and saw the felon storm out of the back of the home and hop a fence into the opposite neighboring backyard. The man then vanished before officers could catch him. A deputy continued knocking at the home, and eventually the door opened. While talking to the sister, 25, deputies received a call that the man had been spotted at a nearby home, so they left, and the woman immediately closed and locked the door behind them. More fence hopping led the man back into the original backyard and into the home, but when officers came knocking again, the woman reportedly refused again to open up. She could be seen in the window, and an officer told her to open the door. She replied by shaking her head no. Then asked if the man was inside, she nodded her head yes. With officers knocking in the front, the man reportedly sped out the back door and over the fence again. An El Carro Road resident reported seeing him, but neither officers on the ground nor in a helicopter could track the swift fence hurdler down. A couple of days later, officers went to a separate Anita Street residence looking for the man. A woman there, 23, and her grandmother told officers the man was not in the home. Officers saw the man again bolt out the back door and over a fence. Though they never tracked down the man, deputies obtained a warrant for the sister for the alleged crime of harboring a felon and arrested her on the charge.

Happy 18th Birthday


the best things are yet to come!

Sometimes I get so used to where we live that I forget to take advantage of all the area has to offer. In the last couple of years I made an effort to explore the coastline more, and in doing so I’ve been reminded how lucky we are. I enjoy spending time in the water, but this year I put my snorkel gear to good use, visited the Channel Islands, and kayaked through the kelp beds off the coast. Marine Protected Areas like those throughout the Santa Barbara Channel are important for the preservation of marine life. The nutrient rich cold water and kelp beds that are typical of this region of the Pacific provide habitat for a diverse variety of life, from marine mammals like migrating gray whales, orcas, dolphins, sea lions and seals, to differ types of fish, nudibranchs, sea stars, urchins and shellfish. Managed MPAs provide habitat that promotes longterm conservation of species. Because the ocean is large, as those populations grow there is a sort of spillover effect. The population that increases leads to the species becoming more abundant outside of the protected area. Around the world and locally, established protected areas have allowed populations that once were on the decline to recover, and even thrive in certain areas. All one has to do to see evidence of this is visit one of the nearby protected areas. The Channel Islands Marine Sanctuary, which was established in 1980, spans 1,470 square miles, surrounding the coastlines of Santa Cruz, Anacapa, San Miguel, Santa Rosa and Santa Barbara islands. Within that area, there are 11 marine reserves and two marine conservation areas, collectively making up the MPA network. This MPA, like others, is a home to sensitive habitats, endangered species, cultural and ecological wonders, and is an important economic resource for both commercial and recreation industries. Because the ocean is an ever changing environment, the El Niño weather we have been experiencing has affected the local waters. As the water temperature

warmed up, reaching almost 74 degrees on the surface at one point, we started seeing different types of wildlife, like the hammerhead sharks, that are generally seen farther south, while the local wildlife started to suffer. Warm water is enjoyable for us to spend time in, but it isn’t what local marine life thrives in. As a result, kelp beds started dying off, food sources and habitat started decreasing and there were reports of marine populations suffering. As the water temperature cools back down, kelp will once again thrive and provide habitat for the many animals that depend on it. Without protected areas, it would be more difficult to study how the ever changing environment works, and how the different animals are impacted by changing environments. Understanding how different ecosystems work is an important part of wildlife conservation. We are lucky enough to live close to some very important ecological resources with diverse marine life. I encourage everyone to try out snorkeling, or take a kayak trip, traverse the beach at low tide, or visit the seal rookery. And think of how different things would be without the variety of life you see there. Erin Maker is the Environmental Coordinator for the City of Carpinteria.

It’s clear from the 15,000 tamales that get wrapped and steamed each year at Reynaldo Bakery on Linden Avenue that the tradition of eating the masa-based treats on Christmas pervasive. According to restaurant owner Diane Cardeñas, the Christmas tamale traditi comes straight from Mexico. “It’s after the harvest, and there’s all this corn. You’ve got use it all,” she said. Reynaldo’s churns out thousands of pounds of masa, the corn-based dough that is stuff inside cornhusks and filled with meats, cheeses and other ingredients to render tamal Some customers order just the masa to make their own tamales at home with family. the rush to makes masa and tamales, Diane said, “It gets intense, but it’s cool.” Typically orders start coming in right after Thanksgiving. In addition to more standard pork and chicken tamales in green and red sauces, Reynaldo’s has created a variety of unique choices. They make a chilies and cheese tamale and a chorizo tamale for breakfast that’s served with fried eggs on top of it. e PhOTO

Flavors and festivals carried to Carpinteria by Mexican families abound throughout the winter. The Catholic Church’s celebrations of saints and many events surrounding the birth of Jesus keep kitchens busy and people gathering time and again. Tamales reign supreme in the holiday season, and of course, gathering with large extended families to break masa together.

Carpinteria is a melting pot within a melting pot. Coastal View News has calculated that numerous Dutch people have transplanted their traditions to the valley. Add to that Mexican holiday celebrations, the candles of Hanukkah nights and dragons of the Chinese New Year, and we just begin to cover the bases of the diversity of holidays and gatherings represented under local roofs. In our five-week holiday series, CVN will shine a light on the rich collection of activities, foods and stories told through cultures from around the globe that have found a place in Carpinteria Valley.


Rosca de Reyes

Three Kings Day on Jan. 6 celebrates the Christian holy Day of The epiphany, when the Magi visited baby Jesus and announced the Savior ’s presence to the world. As with many festive times, the celebration centers on food. In this case, it’s Rosca de Reyes or Kings Bread, a sweet, fruit stuffed bread that conceals a baby Jesus figurine inside. Reynaldo’s Bakery makes several different sizes of Rosca de Reyes, some with multiple baby Jesuses. At the Three Kings Day feast, the family member who finds the baby Jesus then hosts a tamale party on feb. 2 for the feast of the Candles or Presentation of Jesus at the Temple, a day commemorating the lighting of candles to let the world know about the arrival of Jesus.

Medel memories


Longtime Carpinterian Andi Medel Duffield, daughter of Albert and Carmen, recalls the great times of gathering with their massive families growing up. “As young kids, I remember our mom and dad taking us seven children to church on Christmas eve, and then we would go over to our uncle Lucio and aunt Barbara Medel’s house to sing Christmas carols and play with our cousins,” she recalled. The aunts and uncles and everyone had a large family, “so it made for a very lively and festive gathering,” she said. After gifts on Christmas, the family loaded up in a station wagon to visit many great aunts and uncles who all shared Mexican hot chocolate and sweet bread. Carmen, who passed away earlier this year, made hundreds of tamales, which the kids helped to wrap, and Albert, who passed away last year, drove around town delivering them to friends and families as gifts. The children eventually became more involved with Carmen’s production, usually in the week leading up to Christmas. Andi said, “We recently found my mom’s handwritten ‘recipe’— a scoop of this, a handful of that. So this will be the first year that us siblings, grandkids and great-grandkids will continue the tradition of making my mom’s delicious tamales by ourselves on Dec. 19. I hope Mom and Dad will be looking down on us and smiling as we continue the tradition. And I hope our extended family and friends will come by to enjoy them as always.”

Boys basketball players jump-start season



Carpinteria High School

Although the Carpinteria High School boys basketball team is short on experience this season, coach Johnny Ward figures his squad will still be in the thick of things in the competitive Tri-Valley League. The Warriors will bring back only three returning players, seniors Malcolm Gordon, Jax Montgomery and Rayshaun Moore, but Ward seems optimistic that they will pick up the pace. “They’re (the returning players) used to the way things are run. Now it’s just a matter of getting them up to speed pretty quickly,” said Ward. If the first game is any indication, it looks as though the players will be quick studies, particularly Moore who scored 26 points in the opener against Hueneme in the team’s 48-45 victory at Warrior Gym on Dec. 1. It was Moore’s first action in over a year, after he sat out the entire season last year because of a football injury. Carpinteria will also bring in another football standout, 6-foot-5-inch Brandon Jordan, to help shore up the front court, and Eli Correa will be added to help in the back court. “We’re going to be relying heavily on our guard play like we usually do,” said Ward. “It all starts with (Moore).” Ward figures St. Bonaventure, Santa Clara and Bishop Diego will be the three teams in league to beat. “It’s going to be a dogfight this year. There’s nobody that anybody can’t beat, but I think we’re all chasing St. Bonaventure just off of what they were able to do last year,” said Ward of the Seraphs who finished 10-0 in league play. The Warriors will soon be tested in the Fillmore Tournament beginning Thursday, Dec. 10, and will later host the Annual Jim Bashore Holiday Cage Classic, starting on Dec. 18.

Cate School

There’s an air of anticipation at Sprague Gymnasium up at Cate School as the boys basketball team will be under the tutelage of first-time coach Andy Gil. A five-year assistant at Santa Barbara High School, Gil is no stranger to the South Coast. He is expected to bring to the program a wealth of knowledge. “I’m excited. It’s going to be fun,” said Gil. “The kids all come from diverse backgrounds.” The Rams recently passed their first test with a 58-28 victory in a scrimmage in Goleta against Garden St. Academy. “It’s still really hard to tell where we stand. Garden St. Academy is just really young,” said Gil. The team will get a stiffer test as it prepares to play Rio Hondo Prep on Dec. 10 in the opening round of the Ojai Valley Classic. Competing in the Frontier League, Gil figures Malibu to be tough and Thacher will be competitive as usual, but he likes his team’s chances. “We have a nice, young, talented team. Last year they didn’t have as good of a year as they would have liked, but the kids are hungry,” said Gil of last year’s 5-13 overall and 1-11 league finish. The Rams are counting on the smooth shooting touch of sophomore Marko Pliso from Croatia, and senior leadership from Christian Burke and Clinton Hall. “A lot of the guys are football players, and they had a good team, so they all ought to get after it,” concluded Gil.

Triton swimmers shine in Simi Valley Swimmers with the Carpinteria Tritons Swim Club competed in the Simi Valley CSSC Annual Holiday Meet on Dec. 5 and 6, and Caleb Classen qualified for the Winter Junior Olympics in Los Angeles. In all, nine swimmers hit the pool at the meet, the final qualifier for the Junior Olympics. Classen qualified for the 100 backstroke (1:06.52) and 200 backstroke (2:28.20), both of which were personal bests. The Junior Olympics will take place Dec. 11 through 13. Other participants, who nearly all set new personal records in their events, were Ruby Cluderay in the individual medley, Sydney Endow in the backstroke, Nathan Endow in the backstroke, Augie Sheaffer in the backstroke, Olivia Sheaffer in the backstroke and Eli Sheaffer in the freestyle.


Warrior senior Rayshaun Moore poured in 26 points in a 48-45 win over Hueneme to start the season.

Carpinteria High School

Boys soccer

Dec. 4 – The Carpinteria High School boys soccer team played its first preseason game against the Division I Oxnard High School Yellowjackets and lost 3-2. The Warriors’ starting lineup included two freshmen, four sophomores, two juniors and three seniors. The Warriors took a 1-0 lead on a goal from senior Bryan Tiara, assisted by sophomore Luis Garcia in the 30th minute of the first half. The Jackets, however, came out buzzing in the second half, catching the young Warrior group flat-footed and scoring six minutes into the half, then again three minutes later, and scoring the third unanswered goal in the 35th minute. The Warriors were able to put in a late goal in the 39th minute on a nice header by Garcia with the assist credit going to freshman Eddie Mendoza.

At Bishop Diego, Tori Kelly lifts off for a jumper in a 39-23 Warrior victory.

Girls Soccer

Dec. 3 - The Carpinteria High School girls soccer team beat Bishop Diego in a nonleague game, 2-0. The Warriors broke through about 15 minutes into the second half when Alejandra Alvarez, who was close to scoring all night, finally put away a ball from about 12 yards out. She followed it up about 10 minutes later with a similar shot for a two-goal cushion. “I really thought our defensive midfielder Tatiana Roquejo played well,” said Carpinteria coach Charles Bryant. “We were much more organized in the back this game, and I thought all of our defenders, Alejandra Garcia, Emily Garcia, Seleni Zamora and Megan Durflinger, played well,” commented Bryant. Dec. 7 - The Carpinteria High School girls soccer team lost a non-league match to La Reina, 5-0. “Our keeper, Laura Valdez, played well, but other than that it seemed the rest of our players just had a rough outing,” said Carpinteria coach Charles Bryant. “Again, just too many easy turnovers, whether it be bad first touches, bad passes or slow decision making, and from that we had a hard time recovering when we lost possession,” added Bryant. “The La Reina team is on par with Grace Brethren in our league, so it was a good experience for our girls,” summarized the coach. Carpinteria is now 1-2 overall.

Cate School Athletes of the Week

Girls basketball

Dec. 7 – The Carpinteria High School girls basketball team ruled the night with a 39-23 victory at Bishop Diego. The player of game was Sierra Diaz with 10 points, seven boards, five steals and three assists. Monique Sanchez had 10 points and nine rebounds, while Tori Kelley scored nine points and Harmony Reed had six points and seven boards. “Harmony was a constant threat in the middle that opened up the perimeter for our outside shooters,” said Carpinteria coach Dan Mercer. The Warriors are 1-0 and will be playing in the Nordhoff Tourney that runs through Dec. 12.

Boys basketball

Dec. 1 – The Carpinteria High School boys basketball team defeated Hueneme at Warrior Gym 48-45. Rayshaun Moore led all scorers with 26 points and grabbed four rebounds. Jax Montgomery contributed nine points. “Rayshaun played his first game in over a year after breaking his leg; and I was very happy for him to be out on the floor, not just for our team, but for him to be able to play again,” said Carpinteria coach Johnny Ward. “We have a lot to improve on,” added Ward.

Boys soccer


Cate School

Dec. 3 - The Cate School boys soccer team opened up the 2015-16 season on Cate Mesa with a 2-0 win over St Bonaventure. In the 25th minute, Cate strung together seven passes, starting in their final third with Christian Herman netting the first goal of the year for the Rams. In the second half, the Rams struck again with 15 minutes left when Joel Serugo played a ball for Ryan Borchardt making a hard run down the middle. The ball found its way to Ben Jessup who settled it and shot at the open net from 30 yards out. “It was a good hard effort by the boys today,” said Cate coach Jim Kane.

Know your body, know your best fit wardrobe wisdom LORI COOPER Drawings by Camille Cooper Dressing well is a skill learned over time. Sure, you can probably identify a few men or women who seem to have effortless style. It’s as if their sartorial ease is in their DNA, right alongside their eye and hair color. However, though some folks have been interested in clothing and style from a young age, very, very few people came by their fashion sense unconsciously and without effort. Today I am here to help you avoid a few dressing mistakes—no matter your age or stage in life. I hope that while you are reading this column, you can envision yourself mastering these skills, if you haven’t already! Remember Dittos and Luv-It pants from the ’70s? Oh, how I longed to wear those jeans with the rainbow embroidery over the derrieres and the heart and zipper pockets. I tried them on numerous times as a tween, only to be disappointed. My athletic, muscular legs would not slide into those pants the way they did when my long and thin-limbed friend Stacy tried them on. If only I could have said to myself, “I have curvy legs; from now on I know to look for pants that are cut fuller through the thigh.” Instead, I tried to squeeze into narrowly cut jeans for nearly three decades. What a waste of time, energy and negative feelings. Learning your body shape, whether you are a man or a woman, can save you from dressing room disappointments. Many of us fall into the trap of looking at ourselves in unflattering mirrors, focusing on parts of our body we don’t care for. Instead, make a concentrated effort to look at yourself objectively: notice where you are narrow or curvy. Notice if your waist is noticeable or more on the straight side. If you are a man, look at your belly. If it is rounded, understand that you need to get pants to fit that part of you and tailor the legs and thigh areas if necessary. If you have narrow shoulders, find jackets with shoulder pads. If you have thin legs or arms, seek out clothing that is cut close to the body for a flattering look. In the end, it makes the most sense to know your body well—the body you have now—and find clothes that accentuate your best assets. Getting a proper fit can prove challenging but not when you know what to look for. According to blogger Diana Pemberton-Sikes of Fashion for Real Women, there are a few key things to consider when looking for clothing that fits just right: “if clothing pinches, strains, bunches, or sags, it does not fit. If it cuts into your skin or rides up when you move, it doesn’t fit. In short, if your shape

is completely obscured—or encased like a sausage—by your clothes, get them altered or find something else to wear.” In other words, clothing that drapes (not clings) comfortably over your body fits you. We are coming upon a new year— now is the time to get rid of clothing that does not fit you properly. I’ve written before about the difference wearing flattering colors can make. It just kills me when I see someone wearing a color that makes her look pale, ill or dull. Just a little tweak to that color’s tone could make her shine! Grab a few tops you feel great in and hold them up to your face in good light. If they do indeed light up your eyes and skin, what do they have in common? Are they cool tones (blue and pink) or warm tones (brown and olive greens)? You can also think of tones as clear and muted. If you look and feel best in deep, emerald green, ruby red and cobalt blue, you look best in clear tones. If colors such as cream, teal and brown make your eyes sparkle, muted tones suit you. Once you know what colors look best on you, mixing and matching becomes easier and you will need fewer garments. We a r i n g p r o p e r undergarments has a huge impact on how well clothing fits and how you actually carry yourself. So ladies, head to a reputable department store or lingerie boutique and get a bra fitting. Find underwear that fits fully over your bottom (unless you are opting for a thong), and make sure the leg openings are not too tight. Men, get some new boxers or cotton briefs that are not too big or too small (please do not get a thong!). And if you wear undershirts, make sure they are fitted so they do not add extra bulk to your dress shirts. Before you leave the house, check yourself out from all angles to make sure your clothing fits smoothly over your rear and your upper body. Finally, giving some thought to accessorizing will set you on the path of becoming a confident, stylish dresser. What are you drawn to in others? If necklaces catch your eye, make them the centerpiece of your outfit. If colorful scarves make you feel good, find some that complement, not overwhelm your clothing. Men, you can wear scarves too with a jacket in cooler months if you want to add some dash to your outfits. Colorful, patterned socks are another way to spice up an outfit. Dressing well requires some thought and practice. In the end, it’s a choice to dress well, one I hope you will make in the coming year!

Morning Rotary welcomes Kenyan filmmaker/ musician

The Rotary Club of Carpinteria Morning hosted documentary filmmaker, musician and inspirational speaker Patrick Mureithi. Originally from Kenya, Mureithi is currently an Artist in Residence at Drury University in Springfield, Mo. As a filmmaker, Mureithi produced a film titled “ICYIZERE: hope,” which follows 10 survivors and 10 perpetrators of the 1994 Rwandan Genocide as they participate in a trauma healSUBMITTED PHOTO ing and reconciliation threeFrom left are Kevin Baird, Patrick Mureithi, day workshop. His second Lizzie Rodriquez and Bob Kingston. film, “Kenya: Until Hope is Found,” was hailed by the late Roger Ebert as “An urgent documentary by a filmmaker I admire” and highlights the healing of trauma following Kenya’s 2007-2008 post-election violence. Mureithi’s films have been screened at numerous film festivals, college campuses and conferences. “Both of my films are about the power of, and the need for, forgiveness, and both contain themes that are not just about the African story, but the human one,” Mureithi said. As a musician, Mureithi was invited to Santa Barbara to perform at Soho Restaurant and Music Club and a private house concert in Ojai. Mureithi also shared his music with the Rotary Club by offering a brief live performance. Muriethi’s films can be viewed at and his music can be found on YouTube.

Paleo promoted at Noon Rotary

Buyer’s market


Carpinteria real estate in 1916 may not have been the bustling business it is today, but a stop by the offices of Miller and McLean would inform a buyer of all the opportunities on the market in the onehorse town.

As the nation gears up for March Madness (starting March 19), CVN thought it would be appropriate to stoke the fire of excitement with an image of Carpinteria’s version of highly competitive basketball. Sports rivals Carpinteria and Bishop Diego high schools vie for a piece of the ball at this Feb. 7, 1978 game.

Huertas touch down in KC

In October, Ezequiel and Felicia Huerta had a great time visiting Kansas City, Mo. They enjoyed famous city sights such as the World War I Museum, Union Station and Jack Stack BBQ. The highlight was cheering on their Kansas City Chiefs at Arrowhead Stadium. Also along for the fun were Isaac and Eddie Huerta who were camera shy. They can’t wait to go back for another game and more sightseeing. The Huertas recommend Country Club Plaza for any CVN-reading travelers.

How Scrooge got his groove back Photos by Antony MArchiAndo

The Plaza Playhouse Theater raised the curtain on its first three uplifting performances of “A Christmas Carol” between Dec. 4 and 6, when audience members witnessed ghosts warming the heart of the bitter, miserly Ebenezer Scrooge. The local cast brought the Charles Dickens’ classic to life and imbued Christmas cheer to open the holiday season. Three more performances, Friday and Saturday, Dec. 11 and 12 at 7 p.m., and Sunday, Dec. 13 at 3 p.m., are scheduled at the theater.

Carolers are having a jovial old time when Ebenezer Scrooge (Gene Garcia) storms in and deflates the scene by scolding nephew Fred (Michael cola).

Christmas past included a dancing young Scrooge who had enough joy in his heart to entertain a love interest.

During his visit to Christmas past, Scrooge sees the cheer in his young self (Ricky Bobadilla), left, as he plays around at a Christmas gathering hosted by the Fezziwigs.

the Ghost of christmas Past (Alitza Gonzalez) prepares to enlighten Scrooge by whisking him into a happier, more empathetic time in his life.

Jolly despite all their hardships, Cratchit family members surprise the miserly Scrooge.

“A Christmas Carol” opens with carolers Renee Faoro and Amber Shannon setting the Christmas mood.

The Ghost of Christmas Present (Carter Hampton) awakens a mystified Scrooge to show him a slice of Christmas at the Cratchit household.

The miserly Scrooge gets a haunting from the ghost of his chain-bearing former partner Marley (Jim Jaimes Carrera).

The cast meets its appreciative audience outside the Plaza Playhouse Theater following the Dec. 5 performance of “A Christmas Carol.”

Scrooge lifts Tiny Tim (Mateo Betancourt) into his arms as he embraces the Christmas spirit after learning the lessons brought to him by his hauntings. Tiny Tim proclaims, “God bless us everyone,” in the climactic moment.
